Purple Smokey Eye

This is actually a pretty simple eye look to do. I applied a purple matte shadow all over the lid with a blending brush (making sure it is well blended out), dabbed on an eyeshadow primer in the center of the lid, then popped on a pressed pigment over-top the primer (so it adheres & stays). Add the liner & mascara last.

Products used: Sugarpill 'poison plum' eyeshadow applied with MAC 217 bush, Toofaced glitter glue eyeshadow primer in the center, with MAC 'damson' pressed pigment applied in the center with MAC 239 brush. Almay black liquid liner on top, and MAC feline pencil liner in the waterline.


Pin-Up Eye Makeup

A Classic winged liner and defined crease. 
Perfect for that pin-up look, just pair it with a bold red lip and you're good to go!

Products used: MAC orb eyeshadow (lid), with swiss chocolate & embark shadows in the crease. Act 5 Cosmetics black gel liner, and Aura Lashes in 'eye candy'.

Lime Green & Pink Cut-Crease

Lime green and hot pink are probably my favorite colors, they look so good together, and are perfect for summer!

1. Apply a primer and MAC 'bitter' eyeshadow all over the lid with MAC #242 brush
2. Cut the crease with a hot pink liner, and blend out with Sugarpill 'dollipop' eyeshadow with #228 brush
3. Line upper lash line with a black gel liner (my favorite is by Act 5 Cosmetics), with MAC #210 brush
4. Bring liner into the waterline with the same liner brush and smudge out with #228 brush, apply Red Cherry  WSP lashes (x2), and add mascara :)
